When visiting the Hunter Valley, North of Sydney, there is often a great deal of quality accomodation from which to choose.
The main criteria that you need are comfort, affordability, and access to local wineries. One such place that I recommend is 'The Long House'.
Rated at 3.5 stars, and featuring in media publications around the globe, the Long House is a fantastic, scenic retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. When looking for property to rent, having a place of this tranquility, right on my door step, is something that is resisted at my peril.
